  • Disobedience Déjà Vu

    Contributed by Gordon Curley on Nov 18, 2010
    based on 1 rating

    Abraham & Abimelech. (PowerPoint slides to accompany this talk are available on request - email:

    Reading: Genesis chapter 20 verses 1-18. Ill: A man opened a new business and his best friend sent him a floral arrangement: • When the friend popped in to see him a few days later; • He was shocked to see that the shop had sent a card saying; “Rest in more

  • Backsliding Series

    Contributed by Dan Buis on Feb 25, 2001
    based on 59 ratings

    Abraham’s lack of faith in God’s care for him leads him to sin

    We started out this series on the life of Abraham using the illustration of the “trust walk.” A “trust walk” is a game we played at camp where we’d have kids partner up, blind-fold each other, and lead their blind-folded partners on a trust walk through the woods. Abraham began his trust-walk more

  • Outrageous Grace Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Mar 18, 2010
    based on 1 rating

    God shows outrageous grace to sinners who continually mess up. His blessings are so undeserved.

    At first glance Chapter 20 of Genesis seems about as useful as a snowmobile in the jungle. It’s pretty much an instant replay of what happened in Egypt in chapter 12. But this relatively short chapter is put here for a reason. Abraham and Sarah are going to have to deal with this repetitive more

  • Fear And Integrity

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Oct 25, 2010
    based on 1 rating

    Done as three monologues: fear compromises integrity, and a compromised integrity breeds more fear.

    Takoma Park Baptist Church, Washington, DC July 13, 1986 Human beings are creatures plagued with fears and insecurities. That we have clearly established, that we talked about in certain ways last week. Of course we are a great deal more than that too. We are vastly more than a bundle of more

  • Part 3 - Genesis 20:1-18 - Lie Like The Devil? Series

    Contributed by Ross Cochrane on Aug 17, 2010
    based on 44 ratings

    To me the real star in this soap opera scenario in Genesis 20 is not the beautiful 90 year old heroine. It’s not the big business tycoon with a LYING PROBLEM. It’s the UNDER-DOG who gets caught up in a life and death struggle by mistake.

    Part 3 - Genesis 20:1-18 – LIE LIKE THE DEVIL OR…? She is 90 years old, BEAUTIFUL. SARAH catches your attention. The perfect Hollywood star, aging gracefully and looking years younger without the use of LIPOSUCTION, HAIR COLOURING, BREAST IMPLANTS, FACELIFTS and all the rest, Sarah doesn’t even more

  • Part 4 - Genesis 20:1-18 - But It's Not My Fault! I Didn't Do It! Series

    Contributed by Ross Cochrane on Aug 23, 2010
    based on 71 ratings

    Abimelech, probably thinking that he can form an alliance with Abraham who is a wealthy man, decides to take Sarah into his harem. Abimelech may be the CO-STAR in this movie but he deserves the Oscar.

    Part 4 - Genesis 20:1-18 - BUT IT'S NOT MY FAULT! I DIDN'T DO IT! "IT'S NOT MY FAULT! I DIDN'T DO IT!" I remember my protests fell on deaf ears and I was made to go to my room without dinner until I confessed. My mother insisted that it was me, probably because of the lie my sister told her. I more

  • A Moral Man Condemned Series

    Contributed by Ken Mckinley on Jan 22, 2018

    Part 36 of our Genesis series dealing with Abraham and Abimelech

    A Moral Man Condemned (Genesis part 36) Text: Genesis 20:1-18 By: Ken McKinley Well we’ve made it to Genesis chapter 20, we’re not quite half-way through this book, and if we’ve learned anything so far, it’s that these men of God in Genesis were just as bone-headed as we are. Adam sinned more

  • The First Healing Prayer

    Contributed by S. R. Manohar on Jan 2, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    Do you know who prayed the first prayer of healing for others in the Bible?

    Do you know who prayed the first prayer of healing for others in the Bible? Genesis 20:17-18 17) So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children. 18) For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because more

    based on 230 ratings

    An Expository Sermon from Genesis 20:1-19 concerning how God responds to our failures.

    Genesis Lesson 42 March 31, 2002 Introduction: Read Genesis 20:1-18 Most of you have heard of Babe Ruth, the famous baseball player who was exceptional at hitting home runs. The crowds would cheer his coming to the plate with great enthusiasm. They would say things more

  • If We Are Faithless, He Remains Faithful Series

    Contributed by Stephen Todd on Apr 11, 2003
    based on 19 ratings

    God’s grace is still faithful even though we continue to sin.

    Genesis 12:10-20; 20:1-18 March 23, 2003 Fairy tales have a sense of justice What if the ugly stepsister married the prince? What if the wolf huffed and puffed and really blew the pig’s house down. If asked you this morning to tell me a story about one of your ancestors, what kind of more

  • When Your Problems Are Big And Your God Is Small Series

    Contributed by Rick Duncan on Feb 10, 2003
    based on 28 ratings

    In this message, we learn how even evangelicals can be guilty of violating the 2nd commandment. When we do, we minimize God and magnify our problems.

    The war on terrorism. The impending attack on Iraq. An economy that can’t quite seem to get back on track. How are you handling the uncertainty of all that? Add this to the typical stresses in life. Problems with relationships at home, work, or school. A fear of not getting the job done more

  • Abraham: Same Lie, Different Country Series

    Contributed by Jonathan Spurlock on Jan 22, 2021

    Abraham and his household moved to another area. What happened when they met this new king looks very similar to something they had tried many years before. It didn't work in this new location, either.

    Introduction: After the events of Genesis 19, Abraham left Mamre/Hebron and journeyed southwest towards the Mediterranean Sea. He entered the land of the Philistines and settled at Gerar, between Kadesh and Shur. While there, he told the same lie about Sarah; only to a different king (compare this more

    based on 34 ratings

    God wants to be master and Lord of our lives, but, God will still be God, no matter what I do!!

    God will still be God, no matter what I do!! Have you ever walked into a meeting and notice someone say, “Well, now that he’s here we can finally get started.” Or, have you waited to get an important paper signed or stamped and knew you couldn’t do anything else until you got that paper signed more

  • The Abimelech Solution Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Jan 4, 2004
    based on 89 ratings

    For the 2nd time in his life, Abraham passes his wife off as his sister. How can he be such a great model of Godly faith when he acted out of fear?

    OPEN: How many of you have heard of the recent “Mad Cow” disease scare? (All hands went up). It seems that never a year goes by that we are not exposed to the fact that one food or another is endangered by some chemical or biological threat. Back in the late 1990’s a High School freshman won more
